Why Is There No Trauma Center East Of The Anacostia River?

There have been 117 homicides in D.C. so far this year. Of those, 74 were killed in Wards 7 and 8.

Still, the only hospital east of the Anacostia River — United Medical Center — has no trauma center to treat victims of violent crime and other life-threatening emergencies. The four hospitals in the District that treat trauma victims around the clock are all located in affluent Northwest Washington.
